Formatted Abstract/Summary
Australian health practitioners now have their own guidelines to help people with acute stress disorder and posttraumatic stress Disorder (ASD and PTSD).

Approved by the National Medical Health and Research Council, these new guidelines will assist health practitioners to determine:
• When is the right time for different interventions?
• What is the best approach for helping people affected by trauma?

The Australian Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health (ACPMH) developed the guidelines in consultation with trauma experts from a range of disciplines, as well as people affected by trauma. These guidelines provide practical recommendations applicable in all healthcare settings.
